THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Midi Restaurant Review

: Offering a menu that is at once elegant and accessible, and located in a prime downtown location adjacent to the Galleria Park Hotel, Midi pulls a consistent lunch and dinner crowd. Billed as a “California brasserie,” the menu showcases sophisticated French-inspired dishes such as chicken confit served on a bed of warm frisée and escarole topped with a deep-fried duck egg with a soft yolk. Not to be overlooked, however, is the menu’s simpler fare, such as a chilled poached prawn salad: the sweetness of the prawns pairs nicely with the tartness of a creamy caper dressing and generous sprinkling of pine nut-levain breadcrumbs. Midi pursues both the Union Square and Financial District’s lunchtime crowds with the cleverly devised Midi quartet: four miniature-size courses (soup, salad, entrée and dessert) served on one sleek plate divided into four separate compartments. Desserts include seasonal selections such as cherry verjus sorbet or a timeless chocolate pot de crème which has as an entry point a dense layer of butter caramel sprinkled with sea salt.
